the mission. this would allow those limited corner commercial uses to expand and it would only apply in the mission district. we currently, on your recommendation, made those changes in rm-3 districts and rm-4 and it extended to the rto. it passed this week on final reading. the only item up for first reading is an amendment to the administrative code for the port prepayment of the jobs housing linkage fee. this ordinance was not before you, but you instead requested a memo. the ordinance is sponsored by supervisor kim. and it would allow prepayment of that fee when the port makes lands available at less than market rate to the mayor's office of housing. and this week that item passed first reading. the only introduction was the landmarking of the castro street twin peaks tavern, and it was sponsored by the [speaker not understood] preservation commission. that concludes my report. the zoning administrator did pass along his report to me from the board of appeals. there were two items that he wanted you to know about. the first was an appeal of the zoning administrator letter o
that is almost diminished, and that is the black color. i want to thank the mayor or listening to those of us who've met with him to share our perspective on what we should do collectively and not in isolation to make sure we will not have another press conference to bemoan, complain, wine, cry -- whine, cry about this problem of violence. some do not like to hear this true statement, but the bible says ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. this community will never be free. we will never be liberated from this problem until all of our allies and our friends acknowledge that the epicenter of this problem comes from folk who look like me. i have presided over too many funerals. possibly more than any preacher in this town. persons who are not members of third baptist church. but we are gracious to let them have our facility, to accommodate them. i feel that we have something to shout about today. no stop and frisk. the mayor has said that. but the mentor of martin luther king said, "he or she who is behind in the race of life must run faster in order to catch up ." we do not ha
of housing has used and intends to use the affordable housing parcels. clearly one of the goals of the early involvement of the redevelopment agency was to front money towards the completion of the boulevard and facilitate that at a time when there were not entitlements for the remaining parcels. and, so, we were able to enter into agreements with the city early on, provide funds, funds that were from our low mod housing funds to the city so that the city could begin working on the octavia boulevard. and we were very, very glad to do that, in part, because one of the goals of the -- both the neighbors as well as the city was to restitch the neighborhood. not only were we talking about transportation improvements. we're talking about how we're going to rebuild upon those vacant parcels and how those vacant parcels add to a reinvigorated neighborhood. and i'm very, very pleased that work with the neighbors in creating half of those units that were -- are being projected as affordable housing units and doing that in a way that has been very, very sensitive to the notion of quality design, to th
, like those farm workers that taught us to work very hard day and night, like my mother who was a house maid in the presidio and taught me to work very, very hard everyday. like my father who is a shoe repair man in north point in embarcadero who taught me to work very hard and all those central americans who taught me to struggle and a balanced peace in our communities, so with that i would like to say it's a honor to be part of this administration and my vision is to be hold public safety in a balanced way, but at the same time looking at long-term goals that really sustain violence prevention services like a community, as a community, as a united community of san francisco, and so today i just want to honor elpueblo. [speaking spanish] , the village united will never be defeated and i trurl believe in that spirit and i honor those ancestors and all the people that taught us that concept and i hope i can bring that spirit to you and work really hard to make our community safer. thank you.

walking, biking and transit use because people -- and i may be a poster child for this. i am able to live -- my family and i are able to live in san francisco without owning a car because of the existence of car sharing. and, so, because we don't need a car, because of the existence of car sharing, we generally rely on transit. for me, i ride my bike a lot. sometimes we take taxis. we often walk to where we're going. but the fact we don't own a vehicle means we're less inclined to just jump in our vehicles for times when we might not otherwise need it. when we do need to drive our own car, we get a car-share vehicle. so, i think if i may be so bold as to say that kind of use epitomizes ways in which car sharing, the existence of car sharing really has very tangible benefits to the transportation system and to the natural environment. so, supervisor wiener made some reference to the fact there are different types of car sharing. this is a spectrum that has the traditional model such as we have here in the city on one end of the spectrum. there are peer-to-peer models that have developed ov
where another great district 11 restaurant used to be "momma's cooking" and "broken record" is there established in 2008 and a great place to eat and a great watering hole in this part of san francisco and in fact there is a group of people that come from san francisco and the bay area to come to the broken record. a great selection of drinks and whiskeys and jason is a big aficionado of whiskeys and things his bar and had different things come and in in that site. it's been an incubator in san francisco. whoever ran the kitchen over the last couple of years are now opening up a restaurant on 400hade street and ricky hobby and there is a great deal of work done and broken work to bring new restaurants and cuisines and always like north american cuisines to san francisco and the southern part of san francisco and i wanted to congratulate jason king for a great establishment, for bringing together giants fans over the year and look forward to you opening up next monday. >> great supervisor. why don't we go to district ten and supervisor cohen. we're going in reverse ord
that location into preferably owned spaces to create a much more tenable expense stream for us, and stabilize our expenses of occupancy. so we have reduced that amount in 2009, we were down to 116,000 square feet and now we're at 81,400 square feet at 875 stevenson street. that property is right behind what's called 1355 market street, or what's been rebranded as market square, where trirt an --twitter and others have mod into. that resurgence has lit a fuse to move forward with new improvements by the ownership of both buildings, which is forcing the item before you today of an early exit from 875 stevenson. our current lease agreement allows us to remain on the premises until may of 2015. so the one agreement, that has us exiting, would call for an early exit by no later than february 4, 2013. in consideration for that early exit, we've negotiated a payment to cover the cost of the move itself, as well as the increased cost of occupancy because rental rates have increased since we struck the agreement at 875 stevenson. so that's sort of where we're at, and why we're leaving. the other quest
of the areas like 17th and valencia where because of the intensity of commercial use, while it was a high-use car-share space, we had a lot of enforcement problems with it. but we have parking garages, mta parking garages nearby, so, that might be a neighborhood just as an example where more off-street space might get people close enough to where they want to be without having to deal with some of the enforcement challenges. so, looking forward, and this gets a little bit to the question, what we want to do is advance a larger, much larger scale on-street pilot taking lessons learned on outreach, on enforcement, on signage, on placement. opening it up, we did this just with one operator when i opened it up to multiple operators and try to get to more of the city. and particularly, to really figure out how an areas that don't have the service already where we don't have that critical mass, how we can maybe get to more of a critical mass. and it may require more than just a single island of car-share vehicle out in the neighborhood otherwise that is under served. so, we want to advance this pil
